European Economic Weather Map – Sudden Change in Outlook

Posted to Economics, Maps  |  Nathan Yau

In this map from the Financial Times, the state of Europe’s economy is shown like a weather map. A cloud with a lightning bolt represents a “sudden change in outlook, outlook uncertain.” There’s nothing but gray skies ahead, I’m afraid. Oh, but wait, what’s that? Cyprus has some sun peaking out over the cloud: “Clouds over growth with some sunny prospects.” There is hope.

  • hehe good to see the weather in the UK is pretty consistent with the economic outlook. nice find.

  • At least Iceland on the map now, I can’t even count how many times it’s been tucked away or actually erased off maps.
    Case in point, the release map for the Apple iPhone 3G. Somebody actually went through the motions of erasing Iceland completely off that map …

  • @Gakera – ha, Iceland – the Alaska and Hawaii of Europe
